I don't think so.

On previous models, if you unplugged the headphone cable the player would pause, so you had to press PLAY again once you plugged the cable back in. So once you swap the headphones on a 4G Shuffle, you'd have to no way to press the play button again.

I have no reason to think they'd change it with the 4G model.

You can buy a $20-$30 adapter that will let you use any headphones or cable you want... but for that kind of money you might as well spend the extra $20 to get a Nano.

You can use other earbuds/headphones but they will be limited in functionality. I.E. You can listen to your music but you can't change the volume level.

Unplug the standard earbuds that came with the Shuffle. Switch the Shuffle to Off and wait three seconds then switch it to either the Play mode or Shuffle to start playback at a fixed volume level.

Which means you may end up carrying two earbuds everytime.
